Bush smokes crack, passes pipe around

How would you describe the current political and economic situation in the United States?

Would it be fair to say that their economy is tanking, with the dollar reaching historic lows largely due to the conflict in Iraq which they have hinted will become a 'generational war' lasting hundreds of years.

But, in a speech last week, George W. Bush declared that the real problem facing the U.S. is the prospect of a Democratic president which would (wait for it) threaten 'peace and prosperity'!

Give me a pint of whatever he's having.
